Programs at Start-up

  GPC 13:46 02 Jul 2006

When I start my PC, it automatically starts several programmes that I do not need.
These are using up memory and, I suspect, slowing down the PC
I have 512 RAM and the OS is XP professional.
How do I prevent these programmes starting-up while at the same time keeping them on my PC for use when I decide?

Click start then run, type in msconfig then select the startup tab and disable the ones you don't want to run at startup.
